MOLINE, ILLINOIS – The audience is in on the action. Did Miss Scarlet do it in the kitchen with a wrench? The audience decides in The Black Box Theatre’s newest offering – “Clue: The Musical.” Based on the board game, the action follows six characters who may or may not be the murderer of host Mr. Boddy.

The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience. 

The cast includes Abbey Donohoe, Ian Sodawasser, Joe Urbanitis, Kathryn Jecklin, Mark McGinn, Nathan Bates, Sara Tubbs and Meg Price. Directed by David Miller, The Black Box Theatre’s co-founder, with choreography by Tommy Ratkiewicz-Stierwalt with assistance by Leah Miller, music direction by Amy Trimble, Stage Manager Cheri Lyman and Kyle Schneider on piano.

Clue: The musical runs March 22nd through 31st with show times Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:30pm.
